Review

The great Hungarian master’s allegedly final work (he says he’s retired) is the kind of film of which art-house legends are made: a deliberate, mesmerizing look at a few days in the life of a farmer, his daughter, and his horse—before they became side players in a key event of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s life. It’s definitely not for all tastes, but this is a profound meditation on toil, environment, and what it means to be human.
